    Another insect...
    Another kyratisation!
    This one went well, with the Judi Kins "Diamond glaze" stuff, colored with permanent markers :-)

    Rather a big fellow, 4cm by 2.2cm.
    Unmarked silver, casted pieces jointed at back with a rivet.
    Talking about the back...
    There is an amazing iridescent enamel!
    Even if it is damaged and shows crackles, I'll leave it as is to show the original!

      Pascale I love this!! Your restoration is just wonderful:-)
      The back is just amazing isn't it, glad you are leaving it as is!

      Your youtube video of your rascals with your cat is just terrific, and the cat doesn't seem to mind the attention either :-)

      Ken, thanks! Really easy to do with this stuff, only use toothpick and be careful not to drown the frame, you must have a try on some ruined pieces to practice!

      Phil, thanks a lot for your appreciation and love, XOXO

      The little Nini is only 4 months old and 4 pounds, she's with us since 2 weeks ago! The rascals are still very curious and enthousiastic towards her, she loves playing chase with them, lol!
